Guest night trend soars to record high

Guest night trend soars to record high


11 April 2014


The trend for New Zealand guest nights is at a record high, Statistics New Zealand said today. Trends for North Island and domestic guest nights are also at record high levels.

"Guest night trends are consistently rising," business indicators manager Neil Kelly said. "Most regions are showing positive movements for February."

In February 2014 (after removing seasonal variation):
• New Zealand guest nights rose 2.4 percent, following a rise of 0.2 percent in January.
• North Island guest nights fell 0.3 percent, and South Island guest nights rose 6.3 percent.
• Domestic guest nights rose 2.4 percent, and international guest nights rose 2.7 percent.
• Guest nights rose for all four accommodation types, but particularly for holiday parks and hotels.

The Accommodation Survey records the number of guests staying in hotels, motels, backpacker accommodation, and holiday parks in New Zealand each month.
